Alexander's Bridge




A LibriVox recording of Alexander's Bridge by Willa Sibert Cather

Read by Eva and Lucy Burgoyne.

Bartley Alexander is a construction engineer and world-renowned builder of bridges going through what's known today (but not in 1912) as a mid-life crisis. Although married to his wife Winifred, Bartley resumes his acquaintance with a former lover, Hilda Burgoyne, in London. The affair proves to gnaw at Bartley's sense of propriety and honor.

Subject: Sort of depressing
This is not a story with a happy ending. It is a pretty good story though. Unfortunately Lucy Burgoyne narrates that last bit which as usual for her is rather horrible.
